Hello, I'm Marie from Oxford, UK. I'm a professional teacher, University Lecturer and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Trainer. My specialist subjects include Business, Marketing, English Language, Media Studies and Sociology. I'm also a qualified English teacher, and have recently been tutoring students to prepare them for their 11+, 13+, and IELTS exams, as well as delivering a complete primary homeschooling programme. In my career so far, I've been lucky enough to work with some fantastic education institutions including Universities and Colleges in Oxford and China. I've delivered professional development training to teachers and professional staff from many different countries, and my work has also seen me travel to places such as Russia and Kurdistan. I am passionate about helping my students and clients achieve their goals through education, and I'm equally as happy delivering bespoke training sessions to large groups of staff, teaching a University course, or getting a call from an individual student telling me they've achieved the grade they needed that we worked on in their private study sessions. Before I retrained as a teacher, I worked as a Marketing Manager and Project Manager for a University in Oxford, and these skills and responsibilities have helped to shape my adaptable teaching style and capabilities. I would love to hear from you and find out about your training and education needs, and let's achieve your goals, together.

I am a very passionate and patient tutor whose approach focuses on encouraging independent thought and interest. I have tutored privately for over three years and strive to make teaching fun and engaging, adapting to each individual student's needs. I studied English (MA, 2:1) at the University of St Andrews, following which I completed a masters (MLitt) in Creative Writing- Writing for Performance, also at St Andrews. I then went on to train as an actor at the Oxford School of Drama. I attended a grammar school (Dr Challoner's High School for Girls) local to where I grew up, following which I had the privilege of going to St Paul's Girls' School for sixth form, where I achieved: A* in English Literature, A in Italian, A in French, and B in AS Maths. I also have a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, and have previously taught beginners' Ballroom and Latin American Dancing. By nature of my creative writing masters, you have to be flexible in terms of what a director wants from a piece of new writing, and from my training in acting, you have to constantly react to the person in front of you, whether it be the actors you're working with, the director or the audience. This has fed into my flexible and wholly interactive teaching style. Learning should be fun, and I encourage independent thinking, creativity and the articulation of both, whatever the subject. I love my subjects and love sharing that with students. My primary interests, understandably, are literature and theatre, and I spend my much of my free time reading, watching film and TV, or at the theatre. Other interests include Ballroom and Latin American dancing, cooking, yoga and travelling. TESTIMONIALS KS2 English and English as a Foreign Language “Cara has tutored my son for six months. She is a responsible, hardworking, and decent teacher. During this period, she has helped a lot with my son's English studies, and my son really likes to learn from her.” KS3 English “Over her time with my child, my observations were that Cara’s personal philosophy were towards: dedication and passion for delivering noticeable improvement, commitment to exhibiting integrity and trust, and focus on the child achieving excellent results. Benefits of her tutoring manifested in the child’s performance in school.” GCSE English Literature and Language, and Common Entrance Scholarship “I can wholeheartedly support Cara as a tutor; she is first class in every way and made the subject accessible for my son who is more math and science oriented. With Cara’s help, my son got an excellent score on both his scholarship exam and GCSE, way beyond what he expected. More the point, he learned to better structure his answers and provide the types of citation and details that had been lacking. He grew in confidence that he could tackle pretty much any prose or English essay. We are deeply grateful to Cara. She always came exceedingly prepared, encouraged my son to be better prepared and helped him in supportive and confidence building ways.” GCSE English Literature and Language “As an English and Literature tutor for my Year 11 child, Cara proved herself to be knowledgeable in the subjects and was able to impact the knowledge in the child. Her character and style made my child look forward to the sessions.” A level English Literature “Cara was and is a very understanding tutor. She was able to make me feel a lot more confident in myself when it came to English Literature. Considering I had been struggling with it until I decided to get a tutor, she always made me not give up so easily. Her teaching methods were effective and made the subject more interesting. She would always make sure that I would be the one to answer a question or think of a suggestion instead of answering it for me. She always gave me time to think and was always open to anything I would suggest even if it was not always correct. I definitely ended up enjoying my English lessons with Cara more than having them at school. I was studying with her for almost 6 months and we managed to get me from a grade F to a grade C which was my goal. I would not have passed my A level and got into my first choice if I had not started studying with Cara.”

I am currently a postgraduate student working for a Masters in English Literature at Oxford University, with the intention of starting a PhD at Oxford next year. I was an undergraduate in English Literature at Cambridge University, where I achieved a First in all three years. I have a huge amount of passion for my subject, which I would love to pass onto others as I tutor them. I also understand the difficulties that studying English literature can pose, however, from structuring essays on set texts to style of writing in unseen work or creative writing, and I am able to help develop these skills and overcome these difficulties. As well as receiving a D1 in English Pre-U, I studied Spanish and Latin Pre-U at Westminster School, receiving a D1 in Spanish and a D2 in Latin. I strongly believe that languages are the most enriching subjects you can study, both intellectually as they challenge you to think more closely about the language and grammar that we use every day (Latin in particular encourages you to think about the roots of our language and the complexities of grammar, something I find particularly interesting), but also practically, as being able to speak Spanish opens up a whole world of people, experiences and opportunities which would otherwise have been impossibilities. With my help, students could conquer these languages and uncover the enriching and exciting possibilities that they offer. I also studied Maths to A-Level, where I received an A*. As someone who studied Maths as a complement to other humanities subjects, I like to think that I have a somewhat unique angle from which I can approach Maths teaching, which may be of help to those who are struggling at Maths and would like an extra helping hand. My main experience has been volunteering-based, as I was a volunteer for 2 years at a special-needs school, where I helped out in the classroom with a range of age-groups, teaching subjects from Science to English. I also have two younger siblings, whom I have helped with their schoolwork for a number of years, in particular informally tutoring my brother in Latin and English.

I am a 26-year-old Oxford graduate (first-class honours) and fully-qualified English teacher with over five years teaching and tutoring experience. In terms of my own qualifications, I have 11 GCSEs (9 A* / 2 A grades), 5 A-Levels (5 A* grades), a Bachelor Degree (1st Class) and a Master's Degree (Distinction). I also have three years` experience teaching English Literature and English Language at Hurstpierpoint College, an outstanding, mixed-sex independent school in Sussex. Here, I taught students ranging from Year 7 to Year 13. My classes at GCSE and A-Level consistently attained excellent results and I am familiar with a variety of exam-boards, including Edexcel, OCR, WJEC and AQA. I have a strong understanding of exam specifications, mark-schemes and course structures, and I have extensive experience teaching and marking English coursework. As Head of Year 9 English at Hurstpierpoint, I have valuable experience designing department-wide learning resources which effectively promote good pupil progress. When I moved to London to complete an MA at King`s College London (graduating in 2019 with Distinction), I worked with the tutoring agency London Scholars, providing 1-1 English tutoring to over 15 students across London. In this time, I worked with pupils in Year 1 through to Year 13. As well as assisting with GCSE and A-Level exams, I worked closely with Year 12/13 students to support them in their university applications, running mock interviews, supervising EPQs and scrutinising personal statements. I also worked with students to develop their Verbal Reasoning and English skills in preparation for 11+, 13+ and Common Entrance examinations. I received positive feedback from all my clients who have found me to be a professional, friendly and knowledgeable tutor, equipped with effective learning resources. Last year I took a maternity cover post as an English Teacher at St George`s international school, Montreux, Switzerland. During this time I had sole responsibility for Year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 English classes. This experience greatly developed my knowledge of international exam boards and also allowed me to work closely with EAL (English as an Additional Language) students. SOME FEEDBACK ON TUTORING SESSIONS: "Marcus was a superb tutor. This is my child`s assessment: "His understanding of the exam boards and the ways examiners mark essays has really helped me to adapt my style of writing and I feel a lot more confident in my written responses. He is always eager to improve my understanding of texts and has helped me become more critical of my own ideas surrounding them. Not only is he a brilliant academically focused teacher, he is an immensely approachable and likeable person" - Peter "Very good tutor for English, highly recommended!" - Radhika "Marcus is very professional in his approach. So far my daughter has had about 3-4 sessions with Marcus and we have already seen a big improvement in her writing skills. He is patient and engaging and always arrives with a prepared lesson plan. We hope to continue with Marcus this fall." - Milena "Marcus is very professional, organised and very hardworking and he has the ability to engage my son, exceptionally well throughout the lesson. I have nothing but the highest praises for Marcus’ teaching approach and effectiveness. He is also a very exceptional English Tutor. He is very knowledgable on the material that my son is studying and has gone through it, thoroughly with him so far. My son is very lucky to have Marcus as a tutor, as he’s brilliant all round and I am extremely grateful." - Dionne "Marcus tutored our daughter through her English GCSE exams in 2019. Alice wanted help with English Language, particularly creative writing. Marcus`s work with Alice helped her structure her writing and prepare her not only for her creative writing exam but also with an approach to her writing and written questions across different subjects. She gained confidence as well as knowledge from her tutorials. Marcus is easy going, engaging and fitted straight in with a busy household. During Alices recent exams Marcus took the time to check up on Alice and offer encouragement. I`m happy to highly recommend Marcus." - Alex "Marcus has been an excellent tutor for my son who is taking his GCSEs shortly. He is extremely well prepared and organised, with presentations for each session. He gives me immediate feedback and a summary of what has been covered and what needs to be done. A*!" - Max TUTORING APPROACH: In terms of my tutoring approach, I pride myself on providing a tailored service which responds to the particular strengths and needs of the student. Through questioning, constant feedback on work and adaptive planning, I hope to develop a system of teaching and learning with the student which will best ensure their continued progress. I generally build my tutoring sessions around practice papers, example answers and mark-schemes, breaking down the tasks so the student can work on the elements they find most difficult. English is a subject which requires a whole host of skills - timing, planning, structuring, careful reading, comprehension, accurate SPAG (spelling, punctuation, grammar), creativity, analysis, proof-reading - and my lessons encourage students to identify their areas for improvement and to implement practical strategies for overcoming areas of weakness. Above all, I consider myself a warm and enthusiastic teacher. It is my belief that students learn best when they are engaged yet relaxed, when they feel motivated to ask questions and reflect positively on their work. With academic pressures as intense ever, it is my intention to provide sessions which make the student feel in control of their work. Should you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

I am an energetic and creative Masters-educated tutor with a passion for teaching. I started tutoring while I was in high school and focused specifically on CIE A-Levels as well as UCAS and Personal Statement advice. I successfully secured places in some of London's top universities and can help other students do so. I have 4 years experience tutoring and believe that my strength lies in forging personal connections with my tutees which helps me better understand their needs, not so long ago I was their peer meaning I can thoroughly emphasise with their concerns and struggles. To see the best results, I believe that study programmes must be tailored to each student, with realistic and achievable milestones and goals being outlined. So far, the students I tutored attained or surpassed their academic goals, achieving A's in the A-Level exams I tutored them for and securing places at top UK universities.

I have taught English Literature for over 25 years from secondary to degree level. I worked as a lecturer in English Literature at the University of Leicester, Loughborough University and The Open University. I’m also a GCSE and A Level examiner with Cambridge Assessment and have taught at many levels of age, ability and subject experience. I hold a PhD in English Literature (University of Leicester, 1998) and also a first class BA Hons degree in English Literature (University of Leicester, 1993). I was Visiting Fellow at Oxford University in 2000 and I am the author of the book, ‘The Man who would be Kipling: The Colonial Fiction and the Frontiers of Exile’ (Palgrave Macmillan, 2003). I embrace a welcoming, collaborative approach to teaching in which students actively engage in the learning process, assured that their ideas are welcomed, valued, and encouraged. I’ve found over the years that a friendly, welcoming and constructive teaching environment enables students to grow in confidence and develop their interpretive and communicative skills most effectively. Confidence is key to learning, and I engender this both in reading literary texts and thinking about their themes, ideas, values and contexts.

Hi! If you're looking for help learning anything to do with the English language then you've come to the right person! I have studied English for both GCSE and A-Level, alongside History and Philosophy & Ethics (both heavily language based subjects), and I also have a degree in English with First Class Honours from the University of London: Queen Mary, and a CELTA from City and Islington College which allows me to teach English as a second language. My experience working in education began at Lindamood-Bell, a private company which offers a bespoke 1-1 tutoring service in English and Maths, specialising particularly in helping students with behavioural and learning difficulties. This gave a strong foundation in working 1-1, with a focus on ensuring that my teaching style can be adaptive to the needs of the student whoever they may be. After leaving Lindamood-Bell I went on to teach English as a second language in both classrooms and 1-1, online and in person with a full range of age groups and skill levels. Although my experience is limited compared to older teachers, I have dipped my toes in all aspects of English education and am always eager to provide the best service possible to my students. For me English is not just a way to make money but also a passion. In my free time I love to read all kinds of texts as well as write, and I also enjoy learning languages with intermediate fluency in Italian. I truly believe in the enriching power of English language and literature, and always hope to impart that enthusiasm to my students. If you'd like to know more about me and possible ways that we can work together then please don't hesitate to get in touch!

I have been a teacher of both English Language and Literature for the past 5 years. I am proud to have been a help to a number of students who have gone on to successfully sit for their GCSEs. I am particularly experienced with the AQA GCSE exam format, but I am qualified to teach all exam boards. I am currently reading for my PhD at the University of York, where I am studying English romantic literature, with a particular focus on the study of Keats. I completed my PGCE at the University of Nottingham. However, I did my BA at the University of Malta as that is where I grew up before moving to the UK a few years ago. I like to personalise my teaching to suit the needs of my students and will do all I can to ensure that I am clear and well understood. I prefer a more informal, conversational approach to teaching where possible and, while I cannot guarantee success, I can promise to do my very best to help boost confidence, ability and enjoyment in both English Language and Literature.

My name is Lara and I am a tutor from Maidenhead, England. Qualifications: B.A Art History B.A French Literature and Language Masters degree (MRes) in Assyriology Current PhD Candidate at Oxford University French and English: I would love to teach you if you would like to learn English or French language aspects such as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and spelling. I know I can help you with your speaking fluency and accuracy. I have been teaching languages for two years at a variety of levels. Most of my students improve their language skills and can express themselves and their ideas concisely and effectively. I do this by motivating my students with new teaching approaches that focus on communicative activities. I want my student to feel they have the confidence to speak the language in the real world. I also work with GCSE and A-Level students on exam response and literature analysis. I specialise in helping students identify and understand language devices. Geography: Similarly to higher-level English and French, we look at exam questions and examiners reports to highlight the skills and knowledge needed to attain the top grades. I use exam papers to identify areas of weakness so we can then work on specific skills or topics. We can then revise topics and make revision materials. Specialist areas include coasts and earth hazards, but I have experience teaching all modules. I also offer tuition in Art History and Physical Education. I will provide my students with positive and constructive feedback, and an achievable goal timeline. If you want to study with me, you can contact me and schedule your lesson. Hope to hear from you soon.

I've previously been the head of the Classics department at Queen's Gate School where I taught all Classical subjects -- Latin, Ancient Greek Ancient History and Classical Civilisation -- at all levels. I also helped students prepare for the Common Entrance examinations in Latin and Ancient Greek. I have tutored students individually over many years, including online in many different subjects including English, History and Philosophy. I walk my dog twice a day and have a keen interest in the sport of horse racing. Whether it's improving your grades or getting the most out of your studies, I'd love to help!
